Heigl made the announcement on her charity website. The Korean baby arrived in Heigl and Kelley’s lives September 13.
Naleigh is 10 months old.
“Katherine and Josh have named their daughter Nancy Leigh and she will go by the nickname Naleigh,” the statement read. “She is named after Katherine’s mother Nancy and
Katherine’s sister Margaret Leigh. Katherine, Josh and Naleigh are together and doing well.”
The Grey’s Anatomy and The Ugly Truth star has surprised many in Hollywood with her asking for a hiatus from a hit show.
Perhaps, we now know why. That, and all the Grey’s Anatomy set bickering we hear so much about every day!
On the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Heigl said that Naleigh is a “special needs baby.”
“I just wanted to make sure that I was marrying a guy who understood that that was going to have to happen. So about a year ago is when we said, ‘OK, let’s start the process,’ and the process
is intense. It’s different but it isn’t, do you know what I mean? It’s just as intense I’m sure to have a baby biologically because you’re going through the whole physical sort of thing of it.”
